Interest Groups for Nurturing and Transforming through Experiences
IGNITE aims to offer our P5 students workshops or courses that our P5 students can decide to take up based on their interest. The rationale for this programme is to give our students autonomy in their learning. When students are given opportunities to be independent, to be engaged and to pursue their own interests, they will be more motivated. When students have the ability to do that, they persist longer in the face of difficulties. They show more initiative and curiosity as well as develop a greater sense of confidence in their ability.
In Semester 1, P5 supplementary is not conducted. Instead, the time is given to the IGNITE programme. Teachers from Bendemeer were given the freedom to come up with their own interest groups to be conducted during the time. Some examples of the interest groups conducted are: Coding, Baking, Table Tennis, Soccer Debate, Appreciating Chinese Culture, Playing the Kompang and more.
Students were given the autonomy to choose which workshops they would like to sign up for and can choose up to two workshops. The programme will culminate in the students sharing what they have learnt from the programme. Through this programme, we hope that our students find their X-factor and are motivated to learn in school.
